Tottenham Hotspur once again look to be without Harry Kane due to injury, in exactly the same month in which he picked up a hamstring problem last season.
Kane started the match against Liverpool last night with Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn in attack and looked to be at his best in the early moments.
The England captain played Son in behind with just two minutes on the clock, with the South Korean winger slotting home only for the goal to be ruled offside by VAR.
Kane managed to play a few more dangerous balls over the top towards Son and Bergwijn before picking up an ankle injury after a challenge from Thiago.
After receiving treatment, Kane decided to play on, only to pick up a knock on the other ankle shortly after in an altercation with Jordan Henderson.
Once again, Kane played on and managed to limp his way through to half-time, although he failed to emerge for the second period and had to be replaced by Erik Lamela.
Jose Mourinho had this to say after the game (Football London): “For Harry to leave a game, when he wants to play always and with the team losing, for Harry to come out is not a nothing injury.
“It’s an injury. For how long I can’t tell you, I don’t know. We have to wait and see.”
